The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Energy
Efficiency and Renewable Energy oversees the Office of
Transportation Technologies, which includes the Office of
Heavy Vehicle Technologies (OHVT), the Office of Advanced
Automotive Technologies (OAAT), the Office of Fuels
Development, and the Office of Technology Utilization.
OHVT was created in March 1996 when the Office of Transportation
Technologies was reorganized. Its sister organization,
OAAT, focuses on the development of advanced automotive
technologies, while OHVT focuses, for the most part,
on technologies for trucks.
The Cancer Centers Program also recognizes that many high quality, cancer-relevant research projects
are funded by other organizations such as the Department of Energy (DOE), Department of Defense
(DOD), Department of Agriculture (DOA), the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), State
Health Departments etc.
From the time of the first Organization of Arab Petroleum
Exporting Countries oil embargo nearly 30 years ago,
the United States has looked to new technology for solutions
to its energy problems. Indeed, the first government reports
to recommend an energy research and development (R&D)
agenda appeared within weeks of that 1973 event. In 1975,
President Ford created the Energy Research and Development
Administration (ERDA), consolidating under one umbrella
existing R&D energy programs from several agencies.
In late 1977, ERDA became part of the new Department
of Energy (DOE).
The Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory (INEEL), through the U.S. Department of
Energy (DOE), has proposed that a large-scale wind test facility (LSWTF) be constructed to study, in full-scale,
the behavior of low-rise structures under simulated extreme wind conditions. To determine the need for, and
potential benefits of, such a facility, the Idaho Operations Office of the DOE requested that the National Research
Council (NRC) perform an independent assessment of the role and potential value of an LSWTF in the overall
context of wind engineering research.

This work addresses a policy initiative by the Federal Administration to apply United States
Department of Energy (DOE) research to broadening the country’s domestic production of
economic, flexible, and secure sources of energy fuels. President Bush stated in his 2006 State of
the Union Address: “America is addicted to oil.
In January 1976, the Transportation Energy Conservation (TEC) Division of the Energy
Research and Development Administration contracted with Oak Ridge National Laboratory
(ORNL) to prepare a Transportation Energy Conservation Data Book to be used by TEC staff in
their evaluation of current and proposed conservation strategies. The major purposes of the Data
Book were to draw together, under one cover, transportation data from diverse sources, to
resolve data conflicts and inconsistencies, and to produce a comprehensive document.
Prepared by the University of Michigan For the Oak Ridge National Lab (ORNL) D&D Program and the United States Department of Energy's Robotics Technology Development Program Within the Environmental Restoration, Decontamination and Dismantlement Project
About 155,000 cubic meters of waste contaminated with both radioactive isotopes and hazardous chemicals are stored at some 30 DOE sites, and another 450,000 cubic meters are buried. While DOE is making a concerted effort to properly dispose of this waste, the amount translates to a multi-decade effort that will require handling, characterizing, and shipping hundreds of thousands of waste containers at a total cost of billions of dollars. This report describes basic scientific research that can lead to new technologies for performing these tasks more safely and cost effectively....
In 1950, the United States Department of Energy (then the U.S. Atomic
Energy Commission) began purchasing the land that became the present
Savannah River Site (SRS). All residents were removed (figure A), and in
1951 the government closed the site to the public to begin work on production
of nuclear weapons materials. At the time, abandoned agricultural
fields dominated upland areas, and the SRS and the USDA Forest
Service initiated an aggressive reforestation program.
Welcome to this 31st edition of the Transportation Energy Data Book. This edition builds
on a 36-year tradition of Data Books supported by Philip Patterson, whose recent retirement
marked the end of an era for a long-time asset and shining example both for the Department of
Energy (DOE) and the transportation energy community. Twenty-two editions of this Data Book
have been produced by Stacy Davis; DOE is grateful for the dedication, consistency, and skill
she has brought to this effort....
Engineered barriers to isolate potentially harmful waste
from humans and ecosystems have been used for over 35
years, and much has been written about them and their constituent
components. However, few reports have provided an
overall assessment of the performance of engineered barrier
systems. The last broad assessment was conducted in 1995
(Rumer and Mitchell, 1995). Since that time, new materials
and sensor technologies have been introduced and models to
predict contaminant transport have improved.
The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL)is amulti-program laboratory
operated by Battelle for the United States Department of Energy (DOE). PNNL is one of
the laboratories operated by the DOE ,Ofice of Science. PNNL is tasked with the
development and delivery of technology in environmental science, energy science, health
science and national security. The laboratory employs approximately 3500 stti members .-
and has an operating budget of approximately $500 to $600 million.

The members of the cautious group, which have traditionally been protecting and supporting
their agriculture markets, want to make sure that—despite progressing liberalization—there will
be enough room for them to continue providing farmers with larger sums of support. As a result,
this group wants to retain an instrument (such as the Green Box) through which larger amounts
of subsidies can be paid to their farming sector to sustain a minimum degree of farming activity.
The National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements
(NCRP) was requested by the US Department of Energy (DOE) to
review the literature on the effects of radiation on aquatic organisms
and develop a document that reviews the present understanding of
such effects and provides guidance for a standard for the protection of
populations of aquatic organisms.
Advances in the capabilities of technologies applicable to
distributed networking, telecommunications, multi-user
computer applications, and interactive virtual reality are
creating opportunities for users in the same or separate locations
to engage in interdependent, cooperative activities
using a common computer-based environment.
While the Port Authority’s tunnels, bridges, and airports continue to contribute the vast
majority of cash flow within the organization, over recent decades the Port Authority has
become a significant real estate developer and asset manager with its own expansive security
force, a posture that warrants further evaluation as the demands of the WTC development
